Psoriasis - Before Treatment

Psoriasis is a health condition that affects the skin and inevitably the patient’s mind and self-confidence.

So, when John (name changed to protect privacy) walked into my clinic recently, with a beaming smile, I instantly knew something had changed.

There was something different in how he looked too. But before I could say anything, he gushed, “Doctor, I’m wearing shorts after 15 years! I’ve been dreaming of wearing shorts and walking around my village and I finally can.”

John had come to me two years ago. He had been suffering from psoriasis since 2017 and had tried different treatments. None had worked and the disease had sapped away his confidence… till he began homeopathic treatment.

John’s heart-warming return of confidence is one of thousands of such stories from patients that pushes us as homeopaths to continue our practice. Stories about how homeopathy has improved their lives. Not just physically but also mentally.

This is because homeopathy looks at illness as dis-ease, i.e., you are not at ease. And it works by understanding why you have that disease.

So, when you go to a homeopath, you will spend hours of your first session speaking a lot about yourself and answering a lot of questions. What the homeopath is trying to do through this procedure is understand your disease by understanding you. Your personality.

When treatment begins, you will find that a good homeopath gives you as little medication as possible. It’s how homeopathy works. Not by quantity but by quality. By curing from within, from the very cells of your body. The change, depending on the disease, is often long-lasting if not a complete cure.

It is wrongly believed that homeopathy is slow, not scientific, and cannot be used in acute cases. Do not get fooled by the negative inputs of people who know nothing about this beautiful science. Dare to be wise.

Dos for Psoriasis:

  • Keep your skin moisturized: Psoriasis tends to make your skin dry and itchy, so it's important to moisturize it regularly to prevent cracking and flaking.
  • Follow a healthy diet: Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help manage psoriasis symptoms. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and nuts may also help.
  • Manage stress: Stress can trigger psoriasis flare-ups, so finding ways to manage stress, such as through exercise or meditation, may help reduce symptoms.
  • Use gentle skin care products: Choose skin care products that are gentle and fragrance-free to avoid irritating your skin. Avoid using harsh soaps or cleansers.
  • Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep can help your body better manage psoriasis symptoms.
Don'ts for Psoriasis:

  • Don't scratch or pick at your skin: Scratching or picking at psoriasis lesions can make them worse and may cause infections.
  • Avoid triggers: Some people with psoriasis may find that certain triggers, such as alcohol or tobacco use, make their symptoms worse. Try to avoid these triggers if possible.
  • Don't use tanning beds: Tanning beds can cause skin damage and may make psoriasis symptoms worse.
